An old guitar by his side
Together they’ve written so many songs
It’s got a soul of its own
Well broken in, to be played it longs

Long blonde hair
Sometimes bearded, sometimes shaved
Cowboy boots or all stars on his feet
Freedom is what he’s craved

Hits fall out of him
Like water from a faucet
Highs and lows throughout his life
Are the backdrop, they cause it

Listening to his music
You see into his soul
Take a listen to Tom Petty
And your musical education can be whole


I’ve recently, as in yesterday, started messing around with some alternate tunings on my guitar and I’m curious if anyone out there has any pointers, tips, tricks, recommendations, etc. I’d like a good iPhone/iPad app for tuning to these different tunings and a good website explaining basic chord shapes in the different tunings. If anyone has any recommendations, please leave a comment. Sorry this is so short and kind of selfish of a post. It’s been a crazy, busy week. I hope everyone has a great weekend!

For my birthday my mother got me the “Guitar Player Repair Guide” and I’ve thoroughly enjoyed it.

It’s full of basic info and a whole lot of advanced set-up and repair work. Even if you don’t plan on doing a lot of work on your own guitar(s), its a good idea to at least know how to diagnose a problem and have an understanding of what your repair shop guy says needs to be done. There is info as basic as cleaning your guitar to adjusting the truss rod to re-fretting. It’s a great, interesting book for every guitar player, so get it if you play guitar or know someone who does. It’s well worth the money.

On another note...

This is about my struggle to confront my fears of changing my direction all for a better life.
